Barack Obama wouldn’t honor his promise to the American people. He promised that he would support the filibuster of any legislation that gave retroactive immunity to telecommunications corporations who helped George W. Bush spy against the American people.
Well, guess what the FISA Amendments Act does – it provides retroactive immunity to telecommunications corporations who helped George W. Bush spy against the American people.
Twice, Obama had the chance to join in a filibuster against the FISA Amendments Act. The first time, Obama didn’t show up at all. The second time, Obama voted against the filibuster.
Then, Senator Obama actually voted in favor of the FISA Amendments Act!
Barack Obama would not keep his promise to filibuster to defend our freedom. Now it’s time for us to filibuster Obama.
Filibustering Obama means that we keep on writing about the FISA Amendments Act and Barack Obama’s role in it. Where Barack Obama expects to get praise from progressives, he will get criticism instead. We will keep this issue at the forefront of the 2008 presidential election until Obama admits his mistake and introduces a bill into the Senate to repeal the FISA Amendments Act.
Now is the time for true citizens to do what our representatives would not. Join the filibuster – start today!
